Keep your religion to yourself, idiot.

I was wondering who in the world would get worked up over something so innocuous, but I guess there are those types out there.
 
2014-07-04 04:57:29 PM  
Nevermind. She apparently did a lot more than just that.

Clerk at a post office I used to go to would always say that in a smarmy voice. He probably meant well, but it creeped me out.

Don't go bringing your religion to work with you if you work in a place that has a different religion

/like worshiping Mammon

We all worship Mammon in this country. Don't let our Christian trappings fool you a bit.

I have no objection to hearing "have a blessed day," but it's really not much different than hearing "allah akbar", and we know how that would end up.

Although "blessed" is a bit more non-demoninational.  In my opinion, if the only thing she did was say "blessed", complaining about it is kind of a jerk move.  But if (like the article states) she starts proselytizing, I'd have a problem with it.

If my bank teller tried talking to me about her religion, I'd have a problem with it too.

It's Kenf*ckingtucky, what do people expect? Bible belt and such.

The written warning also states that Neace asked a customer, "Did you take the Lord's name in vain?" and then proceeded to talk to that customer about salvation.

Yyyyyyyyeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeahhhhhhhh... Don't do that.

Looks like she's got a good case.

Earguy: not much different than hearing "allah akbar"


Actually it'd be like saying "salaam aleikum" which I have no problem with. She probably got into trouble for this bit, though:

"The written warning also states that Neace asked a customer, "Did you take the Lord's name in vain?" and then proceeded to talk to that customer about salvation."

She was the one saying "God Bless" which to some religions is taking the lord's name in vain; it's like your pushing him around.

As we learned from the SCROTUS ruling for Hobby Lobby, the employer's religion is the important one.

I think I am going to respond with Salaam Aleikum each time someone tells me to have a blessed day

/thanks for the idea

Anti-discrimination laws require employers to accommodate the religious beliefs of their employees.  Rather than accommodate her views, this bank banned her from any religious expression, and then fired her when she protested.  That will be hard to justify.

It's no different than the hyperventilating over Happy Holidays we have to go through every year.

I have a feeling there's more to this story than just this:

The written warning also states that Neace asked a customer, "Did you take the Lord's name in vain?" and then proceeded to talk to that customer about salvation.

And there it is.
 
2014-07-04 08:34:17 PM  
It's bad enough having people demand I have a nice day.  I prefer rotten days, less chance of something going wrong.

Save it as a phone number?


As for the teller, I'm sure it was because she pronounced it "bles-sed day"

Bank teller claims she was fired on account of saying "Have a blessed day" fired for insubordination

FIFY.

People complained about your valediction so your boss told you to stop because it was bothering the customers and you refused so you got fired, so you get nothing, you lose, have a blessed day ma'am.
 
2014-07-04 08:39:33 PM  
"I was upset with the fact they were stifling me and not allowing me to act on my beliefs," Neace says.

Sorry honey, you don't get to proselytize at work unless you're a priest.
 
2014-07-04 08:41:08 PM  
Save the godbothering for your own free time. Doing it at work is going to get you fired and rightly so.
 
2014-07-04 08:42:02 PM  
I feel relatively confident that she was fired because she's the type of person who would go on Fox and claim she was fired for saying "Have a blessed day."

You know what?  Good, anyone who goes out of their way to work that in every conversation should be fired.

I have a co-worker who occasional goes on kicks of saying that.  She openly brags to anyone who brings it up/asks her about it /compliments her about it that it's her way of sticking it to the liberals who are trying to outlaw Christianity.   I've never met anyone doing this who wasn't a complete horse's ass about it and one of the worst examples of a Christian imaginable.

Swing and a miss. But keep practicing! You'll get there, champ.

What an awful person to complain about someone wishing a blessing upon you.
 
2014-07-04 08:46:18 PM  
perhaps with all of this time off he can take a look at the 9th commandment.  Seems a big part of the story was left out.

I do not feel you are being sincere.
 
2014-07-04 08:48:50 PM  
Do the farking job, stick to the script, and go home to your real life.

If you're the kind of Christian who can't get through a conversation without sticking some kind of subtle "HEY I'M A CHRISTIAN!" comment in there, you're probably not as good at being a Christian as you think you are.
 
2014-07-04 08:50:49 PM  
I just get pissed off by the pushy proselytizers that do it while I am on a boat.

This.  Her sentiment may be, in a sense, kind.  But she knows damn well how in your face she is being by blessing people in the name of her deity, and that she will offend those who don't share her faith.  She knows she'll offend non-Christians, and that's part of the reason she does it.  Christians feel it's their duty to thumb their nose at non-Christians.  Half the top news stories are Christians basically being dicks to everyone else.

Good.  Fire the biatch.  Maybe she can get a job at a church.

Proselytizing is not accommodating anyone's beliefs. The moment she did that, game over.
